Hard-Core-DX.com: Reported new SW station from Algeria

Reported new SW station from Algeria

Tuesday, May 23 2023

The two Ampegon shortwave tx project is a much longer term strategy,
even in 2006 / 2006 years RTA started renting bcast time with help of TDF Issoudun France center,
that lasted at the end - 13 years - before they built up
their own Bechar and Ourgla 300 kWs TX units
in 2017 - 2018 year with help of Bodo DF-operator - who also furbished MLK at Bethel PA station.

Then they(RTA Algiers) have got CONTRACT trouble with the Swiss-German transmitter company,
before the final take-over happened,
that happened very late in 2022 year by HELP of UNKNOWN technician from abroad.

Since the training of the Algerian shortwave technician staff last year,
we can state in real terms that the RTA shortwave service under new label name
from Algiers for the Sahel zone,
Central and West Africa
is very well organized. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

However, all frequencies are not on every day.

This programming has simply been put on the two new shortwave transmitters they had ordered already in 2015, and I suspect that they finally got around to put them in operation only because of this project. How much of the announcements will materialize: Remains to be seen I would say.

Concerning frequencies: Spot checks suggest that the frequency switching now takes place as shown at

Quite an interest project. The Algerian sources and news releases speak of a pan-African radio station, broadcasting 24 hours a day, with correspondents from or in nine African countries, including Lesotho, my own neighbouring country! The aim is African news for an African audience by African journalists. They mention broadcasting in Arabic and French, and "other African languages". If this is a pan-African service, SW makes sense, but I cannot find any frequencies or times anywhere.
